Having foods that are healthy, yet easy to get ready is a great way to prevent yourself from eating less healthy alternatives. You will be less likely to grab a bag of chips or call for pizza if you know you can prepare a meal or snack in just a few minutes. Here are some ideas of things to keep in your kitchen:
– Low fat microwave popcorn
– Frozen fruits and vegetables
– Canned vegetables
– Canned beans
– Containers of pre-cooked brown rice
Note: Sometimes canned vegetables can seem very unappealing to eat, especially on their own. But they can be great on nachos or thrown into some soup so you don’t have to spend the time preparing fresh vegetables.
